Discovery Network has some amusing new commercials. (click "Watch the TV spots", lower-left). My favorite? Milk truck!

I rather enjoyed the Antlers one (slow going, but nice payoff in the end). But then that's probably because I always enjoyed Ray Bradbury's A Sound of Thunder.

torn between antlers and milk... That panting squirrel will probably win. Too funny.

Am I the only one who couldn't understand what the woman was saying in the Transporter commercial?

I think Antlers would have made a better flash game than the Telepathic Rancher

Thanks for that.

She's really mumbly. I had to rewatch it about 4 times before I could get it.

Discovery is lucky I watch all my TV ads on the internet.

Thanks, crash.

We need more commercials like these, and fewer decapitated cats. I laughed out loud at all four of them.

That was definitely the clincher for me.

I've only seen the Milktruck one on Tv...definetly my favorite...the squirrel rules!

I listened 3 times then gave up ;)

"Milk truck" is definitely best. Then Rancher. The other 2 are more in the "mad scientist" vein which is more tired and less subtle.

Ah, there it is. "I'll never let you build a molecular transporter again."
